The bioassessment protocol is one of several tools, including chemical analysis and field study, that can be used to characterize the potential environmental risk associated with hazardous waste sites. The protocol can be applied to priority ranking for deciding the need for cleanup of a site compared to other sites, and to assess cleanup effectiveness by testing for potential hazards at the site boundaries or along a sampling transect. Bioassessment involves using defined biological tests to determine the biological response to concentrations of the biologically active components of soil and water samples from a hazardous waste site. The tests are described in the report Appendix and include aquatic and terrestrial tests.
